BandPage has just announced deeper integrations with several partners in their new Connect API, as well as new usage numbers for their platform. Musicians can now update Facebook, Twitter and SoundCloud profile pictures right from BandPage, plus update their SoundCloud bio. The company has also announced that 100,000 extensions (widgets connecting musicians’ Bandpage profiles to their websites and blogs) have been used since the July launch of BandPage Everywhere plus other numbers.
In the weeks following the launch, the company reports that several of these partners have been seeing uplifts in traffic stemming from the implementation. Local services like Local Music Vibe saw a six-fold increase in worldwide artist signups and a dramatically increased conversion rate. WordPress alone saw over one million fan interactions with BandPage Extensions installed across musician WordPress sites and blogs, including artists like M83 and Taking Back Sunday.
“BandPage Connect and the distribution of our embeddable API model to third-party developers is simply the next phase of our strategy, and we will continue to broaden our capabilities as well as our network of authorized platforms in the weeks and months ahead,” said BandPage Founder and CEO J Sider.
The BandPage Connect API is open for any and all developers to sign up and start using right away on the BandPage Developer Portal.
